    I am a self-driven and talented freelancer with an interesting variety of skills. Sales, marketing, lead generation, quality assurance, transcription, writing, and graphic design are just one of the many fields I have been exposed to over the last 12 years. I am proficient in a lot of software and web applications like MS Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint), Google (Gmail, Google docs, Google+ hangout), Photo editing software (Adobe Photoshop CC and Lightroom), Zendesk, Asana, Skype, and Wordpress. These varied experiences would suggest my flexibility in any area and a willingness to learn a new field of expertise. I am seeking opportunities to apply and further enhance my God-given talents and acquired skills, to contribute to the rest of the business world. My most recent boss has this to say about me after working with him for over a year: "April is our top employee due to her diligence, quality of work, and ability to train, manage and nurture employees. Beyond the quality of her work, April's intelligence coupled with her ability to handle the unknown is excellent."

    A hot-blooded young writer, I'm quite eager to help you out with any sort of writing work you may need. I am rather flexible in my writing which can range from the humorous to the darkly depressing to formal and curt. I have worked extensively with other websites as well and it is an absolute pleasure to be appreciated for my skills. My ultimate dream is to write my own book, and I have already written the first draft of it. Fingers crossed!

    Currently, I`m taking a bachelors degree in German at University of Oslo. I`m not only learning grammar and translation skills, but also writing literature reviews, analysis of history and reading curriculum material in a 4th language. My first two languages were Norwegian and Finnish, my 3rd was English, a language in which i have many years of experience. I`m passionate about language and linguistics and think alot about how the languages use different methods to express themselves. I`m one to ask when it comes to translation jobs and proofreading in the languages in which I am proficient. Since the scandiavian languages are very similar, I can also provide danish-english and swedish-english translation services.
